Meet Our Leaders


Our current leaders have been volunteering in their communities for many years, and they bring with them an incredible ability to lead, inspire and care for those that need it.


With many years of experience among them, our leaders provide BUMC with the inspiration and direction to keep the organization moving forward and expanding in new areas based on our community's needs.


You could be a part of the growing movement to serve and strengthen the North St Louis County area. Contact the office about how you can get involved today.
